Dave Cornell

Welcome Dave to the Benafica Team

At Benafica our team is expanding and we look forward to spot lighting employees; both long term employees and newer employees.Today we’d like to introduce you to David Cornell.

Dave joined Benafica earlier this year as the Director of Employer Services. Before joining Benafica, Dave owned and ran Cornell Insurance Services (CIS), an employee benefits agency located in St. Paul which specialized in mid to large size employers. Dave has merged CIS into Benafica and is now leading the Employer Services team.

According to Dave, “I wanted CIS to be part of a larger organization that focused on technology and the future of the industry. Benafica is a mid-size company that brings both innovative health benefit accounts to the market like HRAs and FSAs, while also supporting traditional group benefits. It’s a great combination for employers who have done the same thing with employee benefits for years, but now want to understand new options for the future”.

When not working Dave is a busy dad with his wife and three kids. He’s a St. Thomas graduate, and continues to live in the historic St. Paul neighborhood near his alma mater. Dave looks forward to connecting with Benafica clients and assisting them with their benefit choices in the future.
